We are pleased to know women whom in their own unique and personal way inspire us in ALBA. They share our passion for timeless quality and relaxed luxury. They have been so generous to say “yes” to be ambassadors for ALBA and welcomed us to take photos in their homes. We are so grateful for the support you have provided us. Thank you!
Med kamera i bagen møter jeg barbente og nydelige Solmaz på lunsj hjemme – med Sade på full styrke som perfekt balanse til denne formiddagen. Omgivelsene omfavner hennes personlighet i Penthouse leiligheten på Frogner, hvor hun bor med sine kjæreste. Her er det klassisk og moderne kunst i en unik setting med høyder, flater, lys og skygge som en fotograf vanligvis bare kan drømme om.
Solmaz vokste sine første år opp i Teheran, i en familie familie hvor kunst, historie og musikk sto svært sentralt.
Da hun var 11 år flyttet de til Norge og hun har fra første stund omfavnet og arbeidet for friheten for ytringer, rettigheter og elsket det norske levesettet.
Samtidig står hennes Persiske identitet veldig sterkt, og minnene holdes i live med bla. musikk – for nettopp musikk og kjærlighet er det viktigste i Solmaz liv – og henger nøye sammen som hun utdyper.
Solmaz er kjent for mange fra Oslo’s klubbmiljøer som profilert DJ i mange år, og har designet musikkprofiler for Oslo fashionweek, restauranter, butikkonsepter og andre events. Det er umulig å ikke elske musikken hennes, vi deler selvsagt hennes Sound Cloud profil her.
Klær og trender er hennes andre store lidenskap og hun har fulgt Alba med stor entusiasme fra starten, og vi tar det som et stort kompliment at Solmaz er vår ambassadør! ‘Eksklusivt, behagelig, basic og kvalitet’ er hennes beskrivelse, og vi synes hun ser fantastisk ut med både Felicia robe, Bianca throw og Paula sweater & Stella chill pants!
Vi møter høsten 2021 med nye styles, og med Solmaz’ gode, varme og empatiske energi på veien.
Frøydis, Communications and external relations director at Lundin, Norway
Frøydis has followed our process from the very beginning and her sense and awareness for quality, timelessness, sustainability and least but not last her own personal style and taste is a great inspiration for ALBA. One of Frøydis favourite is the classic CARLA vest in the finest cashmere that suits perfect on formal and informal occasions, and we love how she wears it. We are so pleased that Frøydis is advising us when we decide our final touch on our styles.
Anette, graphic designer and founder of Blunderbuss
We brought along our camera and visited our good friend Anette in her home. She adores ALBA´s LAURA neck warmer and she uses it as an accessory both inside and outside the house. Anette is educated as a graphic designer and has for more than 15 years been heading Blunderbuss, with focus on editorial design. Her apartment is filled with books she has published, and her husband’s art. Anette has collected several awards for the art books she has designed with inspiration from her extended travel and years abroad. She has a clear personal style, and we love the way she combines trend with ALBA´s timeless qualities, which we find both inspiring and cool. Thank you for our visit and your unique style!
Anne-Cathrine, property manager at Vulkan Aspelin Ramm
Anne Cathrine is an ambitious woman with an ability to always look at the bright side of life and solve any issue! She has a unique sense for quality and functionality, together with her great interest in fashion and we are so proud she has chosen ALBA. Luxurious simplicity at is finest as she expresses it. Her enthusiasm, humour and desire for her surroundings makes every meeting with Anne-Cathrine uplifting. As a true football supporter you will find her at the field seven days a week. Thank you for your everlasting positive and warmhearted attitude as an ALBA ambassador.
Silje was one of ALBA´s first customers and she looks marvelous here in her CARLA vest and FELIX rib scarf. Unique architecture, art and a muted colour palette in her home was a perfect scenery for the photoshoot. Silje is a smart and intellectual woman with great interest in literature, art, design and in a sustainable lifestyle. She is religious scholar and has worked as a project manager and advisor. But life made a tough turn for Silje and she has had to fight off serious illness and today her time is spent with her family, close friends, nature, studies, yoga and her passion for weaving. At the old weave Silje finds harmony and peace at mind and working with natural fibres lets her creativity flow. We are so thankful that Silje is one of ALBA´s ambassador’s representing our values the best possible way.
Maria, yoga teacher (E-RYT500) and head of yoga at Aya yoga
When we designed our leg warmers we were inspired by Maria! She started her yoga journey in San Francisco almost a decade ago, and in addition to being a fulltime yoga instructor, she has found time to publish an instructional yoga book with sequences designed for your home practice. We are so happy Maria choose ALBA´s leg warmers in 100% cashmere when she practices, and she also loves her CARLA vest that fits perfectly to and from classes. Maria´s strong integrity combined with her passion and dedication is both admiring and inspiring, and that she wears ALBA with style everyday makes us very proud!
Elisabeth, graphic designer, Oslo Politi
Here is Elisabeth in her garden house that she has designed and built all by herself. She works as a graphic designer, she is very creative and has redefined the meaning of being energetic. We are so pleased that she has been one of our great supporters from day one in the creating of ALBA.
